Pours a dark yellow with small white head.Has a sweet malty hop aroma.Sweet malt makes up most of the flavor with a subtile hop note followed by nice bitter ending. This brew is pretty watery,but has a nice flavor. This could be a all nite drinker brew.

Light caramel/hop aroma, taste is spritzing and light,but pleasant enough,has a very distinct sweetness to it,only the slightest of bitterness sensations.Would make an outstanding session brew

Golden in color with light foam. The aroma is intense and very full for a PA which is probably why i enjoy it so much when i cant get an IPA at the bar. Great hoppy and light beer.

I also sampled this while down in Atlanta. I have to say this is a really great pale ale. Pours a darker golden color with a nice prickly head. This stuff smells fairly sweet actually with the hops taking a backseat on the nose. Taste is a whole different story! This beer is sticky, sweet, citrus, and just hoppy enough to give a crisp kick. Excellent stuff and if I could get it more easily I might drink this from time to time over SN Pale Ale.

12oz bottle (thanks to jrob_21) poured a clear pale/gold color with almost no head. Aroma was sweet malt and not that much of a hop nose. Taste was well rounded with a good bitterness and malt profile. Could use more carbonation.

Thanks to decaturstevo for this, yellow pour with white frothy head. Nose of citrus with sweetness to it. Flavor is rather smooth, with a crisp clean finish.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & biegaman -- my bottle courtesy of shp555. Pours a clear golden-orange with an average size diminishing white head. Pleasant C-hop aroma and flavour -- simple but easy to drink. A little watery but not too bad. Medium bodied. Perhaps a little dull but its still a pretty good Pale Ale.

(Draft. Bottles). Stuck in Atlanta ... this was a nice find. Hazy orange. Medium white head. Standard pale ale hops lend citrus notes and a crisp finish. Quite nice.

Pours a cloudy orange with a medium white head. Nice mellow hop aroma, hints of grapefruit and other citrus fruit. Pretty nice smooth, crisp taste. Hops are present, but not overdone. Slight bitterness towards the finish, but very refreshing overall. I get a little maltiness in the taste as well, just enough to balance out the hops. Grapefruit is really the only fruit characterI pulled out of this beer. Overall pretty decent.
